One ball round
Excellent parkland course, tees/fairways in excellent shape for late November. Wide open fairways allowed no lost balls (does not happen too often in Ireland). Greens were a bit long/hairy but rolled true as long as you gave it what it needed. Staff was friendly/pleasant with not many golfers on the course walked the 18 in 3 hours on a Sunday afternoon
Well worth a visit
I played a twoball recently at Deer Park, it's only the second time I've played this course. As an new but improving golfer, having taken the game up a few years ago it was a really enjoyable round. Unless you've some wild shots, It is a forgiving course, but not a walkover with it's use of the topography. On the 1st and 17th holes you're driving down the hill of Howth, so a good drive landing on the fairway will run a mile in summer conditions. There are no water hazards, the fairways are quite generous, and unless you're really off line, you'll be fine. Even though when I visited at the start of autumn , when the leaves were starting to fall, it wasn't an issue. The condition of the entire course was really good. The par 3's are not monsters, usually reached with an iron, rather than a wood or driver. There's a lot of memorable holes, each different from the rest and the scenery is unmatched when you're on the higher holes. well worth a first, or return visit !
As courses go, you will not find a better course to play with spectacular views of Dublin bay and city not to mention the historic castle as well.
The course while long on certain holes represents challenges for low handicappers but also somewhat fair for high handicappers as well.
Overall an enjoyable golf experience and one I'll try again in the near future.
Certainly not Expensive Deer Park....
While Deer Park is not going to be on the cover of many golfing magazines as it is mostly an up and down type of course which can get a bit boring, it certainly is value for money.
And as it is only a few miles from my home, it is ideal and on a clear day the views of Dublin Bay are stunning.
Great value for money
Have played here many times. Good parkland golf, not too difficult for intermediate golfer like myself but plenty long and challenging.
If you like lots of hazards like water and greens lined with bunkers this is not for you. A low handicapper would find this course less challenging as it has very wide fairways and large greens. Greens are a bit on the slower side and dead flat for the most part.
I love the course, it's not pretentious, its maintained well, its easily walkable as it's not too highly, it's generally not too busy and it's great value for money.
Nestled on the top of howth with panoramic views, this course offers a tough challenge to any golfer. The course is quite long and hilly.
A buggy is recommended!
Value for money is incredible.
greens can be a little fluffy.
demanding par 3's (3 over 200 yards)
usually windy on the course.
Solid Course, easy to get to
Traveling to Dublin for work. Very easy to get to by train and a bit of walking. course has two great views on Hole 1 and hole 9. Actually not in bad shape, either. value for the money is unbeatable. If you're in the area for a bit, defiantly worth your while.
Value for money
The main thing to keep in mind with deer park is that it's very affordable and close to the city centre. We paid €16 each and really enjoyed the course. It won't win any prizes for course design or how well it's maintained but it is in more than good enough shape and has a few very good and enjoyable holes. Overall I rate this course highly due to the very reasonable green fees. I will be back again.
Good Value for Money!
Nice course 25min outside of Dublin city centre with a great view. It is not the longest course but if you play from the back tees, it is a nice challenge. We paid 24EUR per person greefee which is absolutely great value for the course!
Great weather, great views, makes a big difference, great value , 25euro for a sat morning, next tee location not so good.
Very nice course - just a little trouble finding next tee box for a couple of holes
Brutal Rental Clubs
Rental clubs were awful and they charged €15 for the pleasure. Other than that all else was pedestrian at best!
The views throught the course were spectacular, the course itself were fantastic, I recommend renting a golf cart it is hilly, but the course is a great challenge.
Very pleasant on a good day
Ground staff should be congratulated for the course maintenance. Some greens were a little long.
